COULD UKRAINE CRISIS TRIGGER A NEW COLD WAR?(23.03.2017)

Could Ukraine Crisis Trigger A New Cold War?

The US’s last presidential race winner Donald Trump’s positive messages to Russia during the election campaign, caused criticisms from his opponents but on the Russian front, it created a rarely encountered public perception in favour of an American presidential candidate. Even after Trump was elected as the president, maintaining positive statements about Russia has stregthened expectations that the relations between the US and Russia would get better. Nonetheless, Trump’s National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s being recently resigned on charges of ‘some bargains’ were negotiated during a phone call with Sergey Kislyak, the ambassador of Russia to the US, before T...


WILL AFGHANISTAN BECOME THE NEXT PROXY WAR?(13.03.2017)

Will Afghanistan Become The Next Proxy War?

Asst. Prof. Dr. Yusuf Çınar from the Department of International Relations in Bitlis Eren University interprets what further Russian involvement in Afghanistan of late could mean with regards to regional politics. The materialisation of the September 11 attacks in between the then on-going post-Cold War American global hegemony discussions once again put the spotlight back on Afghanistan. Afghanistan has turned into a matter of "prestige" during the War on Terror initiated by the George W. Bush administration. In other words, the "Enduring Freedom Operation" was the first indication that the USA was becoming a global hegemon. The US’ involvement in Afghanistan was unrivalled and dif...

A SHARP TURN IN TURKEY-RUSSIA RELATIONS(11.01.2017)

A Sharp Turn in Turkey-Russia Relations

1-What are the reasons that go beyond the assassination of the Russian Ambassador?I am on the opinion that the assassination of Ambassador Karlov is not a simple incident, the reason being that ambassadors only agree to participate in events if they are sure up until the very last second that there will be no security issues where they are going. Even the security guards closest to them learn about their daily program at the last second. If a young, 22-year old police officer is able to murder an ambassador, the issue requires to be examined. As you know, the July 15 insurrection was held by the FETO terror organisation. After July 15, the government discharged a number o...


IS THE TURKISH DEFENCE INDUSTRY READY FOR SHANGHAI?(29.12.2016)

Is the Turkish Defence Industry Ready for Shanghai?

Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) is a rising star in the East. While its development has similarities with the European Union, it also has its own exclusive peculiarities. Both the People's Republic of China and Russia have experienced ideological issues and faced with border violations after World War II. After the end of Cold War however, both countries have realised that the barren rivalry between the two hurt both of them the same. With the structuring they made in 1996, the People's Republic of China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan has announced themselves to the world as the Shanghai Five. The Shanghai Five emerged as a reaction to ...
